In an effort to make Google Calendar even better at managing your day, Google is adding support for Reminders to its app. These reminders will stay on your calendar until they’re actually done, so if you don’t get a task completed on a certain day, it’ll stay on your calendar and appear as part of the next day so that you remember to complete it.
Google Calendar can also access your contacts and Google’s knowledge graph when creating reminders. This means that when adding a reminder, you can easily add a phone number, address, or similar piece of information.
Finally, Google touts that reminders work across its various services. So you can create a reminder in Inbox, Google Keep, or Google Now, and it’ll appear in your Google Calendar.
Reminders will roll out to Google Calendar on Android and iOS this week, and Google says that it’s working on adding them to the web version of Calendar, too. While it’s been possible to create reminders in Google for a while now, it’s big news that they’ll now be integrated with Google Calendar and actually stay on top of your calendar until they’re done. This will help you stay on top of your appointments and to-do list, all in one app.
